I bought this book to make some items for my daughter.

As a quilter, father of twin girls, and fan of Jennifer Paganelli's fabric lines (marketed under her Sis Boom brand), I was excited to check out this book.

I received this book today and was immediately drawn to the bright hard cover tied with a pink bow. On first look through I love the envelope in the front for the patterns. Very convenient. The pictures and fabrics are all really bright and girly. There is a very comprehensive how-to section and all the projects seem to be beginner oriented. All of the directions have lots of visuals and nice step by step directions.

There are only 4 dress patterns, 2 apron patterns and 1 skirt pattern in sizes 2/3, 4/5, 6/7, 8/10, 12/14. The rest are accessories, toys and room decorations. So, if you are looking for a clothing sewing book for the little girl in your life you may want to check out some other books.

I can't fault the book for the lack of clothing patterns. It was more of a buyer error for not really looking at it before I bought it. The front of the book does say 21 sewing projects to make for little girls. I believed this to be a sewing book. The reason I am giving it 4 stars is because there are 4 completely no-sew projects and quite a few others that require very little sewing. This is mostly a crafting book - albeit a really fun one.

The projects are:

1. Mary's Sash Dress
2. Tallulah Halter Dress
3. Josie Dress
4. Agnes Tunic Dress
5. Sophie Glittered Apron
6. Georgia Tulle Ballet Skirt
7. Annabel Apron with Frilly Pocket
8. Hadley Headband
9. Penelope Ruffle-Top Purse
10. Chloe Paper Doll Overnight Bag
11. Girls' "Ambassador of Goodwill Badges
12. Fiona Fabric Flower Pin/Barrette
13. Bridget Banner with Pom-Poms
14. Gigi Ruffled Pillow
15. Willow Small Pillow with Pom-Poms
16. George the Puppy
17. Genevieve Patchwork Square Quilt
18. Olivia Floral Lamp Shade
19. Katie Eliza Canopy and Pinwheel Strands
20. Molly Patchwork Memory Board
21. Happy Birthday Banner

I love sewing girly, girly things! And this book certainly indulges me. Girls' World by Jennifer Paganelli is full of inspiration. It only actually includes 4 dresses: 2 party dresses, 1 tunic style dress and 1 halter style. I like the first three, but - and call me old fashioned if you like - I'm not crazy about this sexy halter top on little girls. The other projects include home décor and crafty items, some of which are sweet and some of which are sort of basic. The patterns are included in a handy little envelope, but the paper is a bit fragile and you still have to piece them together a little. Spiral binding would have made it easier to read instructions. Final garment measurements are not given, nor are line drawings. And since the instructions are word heavy and lacking in diagrams, you need to just cross your fingers that it will work out in the end. Still, I didn't have much trouble figuring out the tunic dress. The real interest in the book is the lush and fanciful styling of all these projects. You might wish you were a "tween" yourself again!

I tried the Agnes tunic dress and loved the design. There were, however, a few small problems with the pattern. There is no instruction given for how to set the sleeves. I added a row of basting stitches at the top of the sleeve cap and pulled them up to ease the cap into the armhole. This is a simple enough fix, but only if you've set a few sleeves before. There are no finished measurements given, only a guideline for sizing, so be sure to measure the pattern pieces. You can see my pictures and more details of the actual sewing here: [...]

Format: Hardcover
After having enough negative experience with sewing and craft books, I finally started got smart and made a rule for myself before buying any future books. Basically, there has to be 4-5 projects in the book that I think that I will make, and if I am inspired enough to actually do at least 2-3 projects - the book was worth it. This book more than filled the bill. There are at least 9-10 projects that I want to do, and after doing the first dress, I am itching to get to every single one of them. Besides the pictures and graphics being super delicious and pretty, the book goes beyond being inspirational.

What I also love is that the patterns have great ideas for personal variation. which really helps to make a simple change that you would not personally think of.

The best part is that each pattern has individual sheets for each pattern as opposed to one sheet with twenty patterns overlapping each other in an insane confusion of lines.

But, what I truly love is the span in sizes. Many books will just give you patterns for either toddlers or tweens. Ms. Paganelli was smart (and kind) enough to give the patterns in sizes for a 2 year old toddler all the way up to a 12-14 year old girl (which was plenty big for me (small adult). I love the idea that I can get a dress for both me and my daughter.

Love love love this book, and definitely worth every single penny and then some...

This is the best girly girl sewing/crafting book I have seen to date and I really mean the best. Tulle tutu's, dresses,aprons, pillows, stuffed animal, paper crafts and even a memory board. There is something for everyone in this book. If you and your daughter or niece or grand daughter want to learn to sew or do a crafting project together there are some great projects for all skill levels. I have young daughter and we found many projects we plan to make together. What's even better is my daughter is getting to that age of being selective in what I make for her and she liked all the dresses in the book. This book is sure to please the girly girls in your home. Well written instructions, well planned, gorgeous photos, I highly recommend it.
